When to Wear a Sleep Bra

Sleep bras are perfect to wear:

  • When you get home from work in the evening
  • If you're hanging out at home on the weekend
  • When you're doing light housework or relaxing around the house
  • When you're sleeping

Because sleep bras don't provide a lot in the way of support, they're not ideal for:

  • Working out (except gentle workouts like yoga or walking)
  • Wearing to work (they may not provide enough support at work)
  • Wearing at date night or any occasion when you want your breasts to look their best

Sleep bras are super comfortable and they're great for when no one will see you, or you don't care what you look like.

But because they don't provide as much support as other bra styles, most women prefer to wear something with a little more structure when they're at work or out in public and want to look their best.
